"A US shortage of a key lethal injection drug deepened yesterday as federal regulators investigated whether Georgia circumvented the law in obtaining its supply and Texas announced it was switching to an alternative. The Drug Enforcement Administration seized Georgia’s entire supply of sodium thiopental, which defense attorneys say came from a fly-by-night British supplier operating from the back of a driving school in a gritty London neighborhood. DEA agents have not said exactly why they seized the drug, except that there were questions about how it was imported." (03/17/11)
